Runescape 3 2014 Ultimate

You might have seen someone who is typing with a red-coloured text, or text that's waving. Typing like this is called chat effects, and you can only see them if you have the chat effects part of your settings in your control panel on. Chat effects will only appear over the head of the person using them, not in your chat box - there, the text will look normal.

To use the chat effects, you will need to write the code, and a colon ( : ) right after it with no space, and then your message without a space before the first word. For example, writing red:Hello would make you say "Hello" with a red font, but if you throw in a space and write red: Hello, you would actually say "Red: Hello" in game... Here is a full list of the codes:

Red: Text is red Wave: Text moves up and down.
Yellow: Text is yellow (default colour) Wave2: Text waves diagonally.
Green: Text is green Shake: Text shakes bizarrely.
Cyan: Text is cyan Slide: Text slides from up to down.
Purple: Text is purple Scroll: Text scrolls from left to right.
White: Text is white
Flash1: Flashes between red and yellow text
Flash2: Flashes between cyan and blue
Flash3: Flashes between light and dark green
Glow1: Text fades from red, to orange, to yellow,
to green, to cyan
Glow2: Text fades from red, to magenta, to blue,
to dark red, to red
Glow3: Text fades from white, to green, to white, to cyan

Now, if you want to do something really advanced, you can use one of the colours AND movements at the same time. For this you need to write the colour first, and then scroll/wave. For example you could write something like this red:wave:Hello everyone and you would say "Hello everyone" with a red waving text.

Emotes

Emotes are a nifty feature. You can make your character perform various actions and poses by simply clicking your desired emote. Activate one by clicking on its image in your Emote menu, accessed by clicking on the waving man icon. The image displayed in each spot is the emote activated when clicking it. You can also hover the mouse over the image for a tooltip to appear displaying the name of the emote. Coloured emotes are ones you have unlocked, while grey emotes are ones you haven't unlocked. Emotes are also split up into different groups and are as follows: All, All (unlocked), Greetings, Conversation, Dance, Feelings, Mime, Zombie, Holiday, Achievements, Weather, Treasure Trail, Loyalty
